Mario Badescu Review and Giveaway!
I am just going to say it. I struggle with acne. Yes, at 22 years old I still get breakouts. I hate it, almost as much as I hate that I have no air conditioning in my car in the 100 degree Texas weather. (But that is another story.) When I had the chance to review the Mario Badescu line for acne overjoyed doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt!
I had the chance to review the Oil Free Moisturizer, the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, Enzyme Cleansing Gel and my favorite the Special Cucumber Lotion. (pictured below)
What I loved about the Mario Badescu product line is that they also send you a regimen card that tells you exactly which products to use when and how many times a week. I loved that! With all of the skin care products I use trying to get rid of my acne, I loved knowing exactly what I was using each day and how many times a day.
I loved each product they sent! My favorite just has to be the Special Cucumber Lotion. It is a deep cleaning astringent that dries up acne blemishes while preventing new eruptions. I use it 2x a day to help with my oily skin. I also really loved the Enzyme Cleansing Gel. This cleansing gel is a non-foaming, gel cleanser that removes the day’s make-up, dirt and oil without drying the skin. Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts help since they are exfoliating Alpha Hydroxy Acids which help prevent dulling build-up that can cause blackheads and pimples.
At first, like any change up in skincare, I did breakout a bit. For almost 3 weeks I had breakouts that were more severe then I had ever had. I was not about to give up though! I knew that with these new products my acne would be coming more to the surface and I would basically be purging out all of the bad things in my face.
I was right. After a month it seemed to get better, much better. After the past 2 months I have seen a huge improvement on my acne! I used to hate my face so much I would even wear my makeup to bed. ( I know – totally unacceptable.) I really did hate the way I look! Now, I am able to go to bed without make up and realize that I did not have to live with this acne forever! I can never be thankful enough for Mario Badescu products!
